Renewal on aisle 3 ... NBC's Superstore is coming back for a 22-episode third season in 2017-18. The single-camera comedy joins freshman comedy The Good Place in returning in 2017-18. Superstore centers around Amy (America Ferrera), the store's most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together. Jonah (Ben Feldman), who is often the target of his colleagues ribbing, is joined on the floor with his fellow associates, including sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn), the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos) and sweet teenager and new mom Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom). Overseeing the store is Glenn (Mark McKinney), the affable, clueless store manager, and Dina (Lauren Ash), the aggressive assistant manager who enforces Cloud 9 policy with an iron fist.
